My 14 year old and I are binge-watching Friends on Netflix. The other night was the episode where Chandler and Monica were attempting to get their engagement portraits taken. As I was sitting there bonding with my teen I realized something about myself.
I AM THE CHANDLER BING OF BLOGGING!!!
Many of you probably don’t know that my major in college was mass communications with an emphasis on journalism. I was the editor of my high school paper. I never met an English class I didn’t love. I had MAD writing skills!! Then I attempted blogging. (Here is my ridiculous first attempt at blogging.) And much like Chandler, who loses all ability to smile when he is in front of a camera, I lose all ability to write creatively when I sit down to blog. Who knew?!?
Currently, I am sitting in the faculty room at my children’s school where I volunteer on Fridays waiting on the copier to finish a massive job. I was bored so I decided to give the old pen (Bright green! Go, Donegal!) and paper (the backside of a copying mistake pulled form the recycling bin) a try. I am not sure it is going any better than when I type.
So, why blog, you ask? As a photographer it is my goal to let my work tell the story, right? A picture is worth a thousand words and all that jazz. Well, research tells me this blogging thing is a necessity in building my business. I will spare you the very boring details. But, here I am (again)…..blogging….and, let’s be honest, not terribly well. But guess what?!? Business is growing. So, I will continue along with my Chandler Bing-like writing skills and hope that you all stop by once in a while to at least take a look at all the pretty pictures 🙂
